For a Great Low Impact Workout, Try Silver Sneakers Yoga at our Douglasville Gym
Gold’s Gym Douglasville (Chapel Hill) has one mission: to improve the health and wellness of our community! That means we offer services and amenities for every age and skill level.
For seniors looking for an exercise that is easy on muscles and joints, try Silver Sneakers Yoga.
Yoga is an excellent workout for health and relaxation. There are no high impact movements, no repetitions, and no muscle straining activities. Yoga focuses on mindful breathing and body position. Specific movements, or poses, foster strength, flexibility, balance and coordination – and are easy on muscles and joints.
For adults with limited mobility, Yoga poses are not set in stone; that is, each pose can be altered to meet your physical needs. The trained instructors at our fitness center will guide you toward the most comfortable yet effective way to achieve a Yoga workout.
Yoga is an excellent form of physical exercise; it is also great for stress reduction and relaxation. In our comfortable and stress-free Yoga group training classes, you’ll realize a greater sense of well-being as you concentrate on breathing, moving and body awareness.
Yoga also plays an important role in pain management. For those with arthritis, fibromyalgia or multiple sclerosis (MS), Yoga is the perfect exercise to tone muscles, strengthen joints and improve balance – without jarring or impactful movements.
